Nouma d’Auzay ( Carthago x Quidam de Revel x Le Tot de Semilly), the jewel of the famous Auzay Breedfarm, owned by Patrick Blancaert, will join Amy Graham’s stables in Belgium. He will come there to support Bella Baloubet (Baloubet du Rouet x Landadel x Capitano), the young and talented Australian rider’s head horse, with whom she has just realised a remarkable 2011 season.
The pair performed very well in her selections in national teams during the Nations Cups in Lummen (Belgium) and Copenhagen (Denmark) also gaining her full MES for London. Amy then obtained numerous places in some famous European events, competing with some of the best world riders, for instance 5th in CSI 3* Lons le Saunier, 6th in CSI 3* Saint Lo, 6th in CSI 3* Caen and 9th in CSI 4* Salzburg. In the last two months Amy has progressed not less than 153 places at Rolex ranking in spite of having only one Grand Prix horse.
Amy, whose immediate ambition is to obtain her place within the Australian team for the next Olympic Games in London, will benefit immensely from having a second Grand Prix ride.
Nouma d’Auzay, the soon to be eleven years old french stallion has been very successful for two years, under 1994 world champion German rider Franke Sloothaak. In 2009 he was 8th eight year old young horse at WBFSH world ranking, winning 35,000 euros with a victory in GP CSI 3* Sandillon, and places in 1.50m classes in CSI 4* Geesteren, CSI 4* Kiel and CSI 4* Salzburg.
Nouma d’Auzay is probably one of the best endowed french stallions from his generation with his genetic lineage. His father Carthago (Capitol I / Calando I) is one of the most famous modern Holsteiner showjumping sires that took part in both Atlanta (11th) and Sydney Olympic Games and also competed in 15 Nations Cups. His maternal grandfather , Quidam de Revel is one of the best sires of the world and reached 3rd individual place in Barcelona Olympic Games. His grandmother, Via d’Auzay (Quidam de Revel) and great grandmother, Kysra d’Auzay (Le Tot de Semilly) both jumped at International level 1.60m, with Herve Godignon, the first named reaching 6th in CSIO Aachen and 6th in CSIO La Baule. In the maternal low origins, Deline was Apache d’Adriers* HN’s grandmother.
